Mother nature forces

Hello all,

The question that I have is one that probably has come before. By using metal post spikes, how well do they hold up in high winds like 40+mph or even tornadoes? I live in Kentucky where the ground is very hard to dig because of what they call the Kentucky blue stone. It is like that of a broken cement pad. A two man auger won't put a dent in it and I live in a subdivision so the use of heavy equipment is not much of a thought. I thought maybe the use of a Bobcat but I take a chance on rutting up the fragile Bluegrass. Any feedback?

Thanks homerhandyman

Try renting a mini skid loader like a Toro Dingo. The tracked machines actually are kind to your grass as long as you only make gradual turns. (The wheeled machines are more likely to leave ruts due to their higher ground pressure.)

I rented one a few weeks ago and it has PLENTY of torque for digging. It can also put down-pressure on the bit to help get down into your hard soil.
